Christmas, Post-Ike

After Hurricane Ike hit, Pam and Warren Adams' house was the only one left standing on the Gulf Coast side of Gilchrist, TX.  Most of you probably saw the pictures -- they were all over the news, and I posted some links to various photo galleries the week after Ike -- a single yellow house on wooden piers surrounded by nothing but devastation. Anyway, it's Christmas and the Adams have decorated their home in colored lights:

"Adams described the lights as a beacon in the dark, proving "there is still life in Gilchrist." She said countless friends, former neighbors and passers-by have thanked them for the holiday display. One woman even expressed her gratitude "for giving my children hope.""
Read the original story about the Adams' house here.

Oh, and FYI, today is my one-year LJ-versary.  YAY!
